Built in 1836 for whaling captain Benjamin Coleman, 121 Main Street features a 4+BR, 4.5 bath main house and a garage with a finished studio above. Renowned island builder Steve Lindsay was commissioned with the thoughtful and meticulous restoration of this antique treasure. Great lengths were taken to retain many of the original features, including sourcing antique materials, such as bricks, flooring, doors, cabinets and hardware, while incorporating modern amenities and conveniences. The impressive grounds of this beautifully landscaped .20 acre lot include gorgeous gardens, a brick patio seating area, stone walls, perimeter LED lighting, ancient elm trees and a mature privet hedge offering ultimate privacy. Meticulously maintained and in impeccable condition.
